Hey Tycoon, I totally agree with your statement that the SSR is a Fountain of Youth or a Rejuvenator on Wheels. I'm old enough(I'm sorry to say) that I went through the muscle car days of the the 1960's. I've owned the GTO's, Chevelle's, 427 Corvettes, etc. and then went through the import phase of Porsches, BMW's, Acura's, etc. Always been a "gearhead" but nothing really pulled my heartstrings the past couple of decades until the SSR appeared on the horizon. I tracked its' progress for the past 2 yrs. or so and then stumbled upon a Redline Red SSR at MSRP the end of Nov. I've now owned it for 6 wks. and have a little over 1,000 miles on it. Here in Tn. the weather has been accomodating enough that you can drive it most days of the week. No snow or salt on the roads. I actually look forward to driving the SSR and make any excuse I can to get behind the wheel. When you crank up a Bob Seger or ZZ Top CD(or turn off the radio and listen to the sweet exhaust sound) you can almost feel young again! I've read the critics say that it doesn't have enough horsepower or it's over priced or it weighs too much and I got got to say is, "screw them". It's fun, it brings a smile to my face, and I almost feel like a teenager again. That my friend, is PRICELESS!
